Can you see it in my eyes?

I am thinking and thinking. And thinking.
Ever since my childhood, I have been living without a «filter»; something to sort out impressions in a hierarchical order. For me this is completely natural, because I do not know of any other ways to live. As a child, I felt that most of other children and adults behaved very different from me, having totally different interests or lacking the desires similar to what I had. I was alone. But being alone is not the same as being lonely. I existed in my own world, but found a lot of euphoria in a few, but powerful interests. 

Having had the Tourette's syndrome diagnose for years, it took me 38 years to get the additional Asperger's syndrome diagnose, after someone came up with the idea that Asperger's syndrome could be the reason to all my inexplicable episodes through the years. Asperger´s syndrome is a relatively new diagnose, and I can imagine a number of "outsiders" and artists throughout the years might have had it, too. But Asperger's syndrome is not an illness; it is a syndrome within the autism spectrum. It has its good sides, too.
